French Farmhouse Breakfast Cake

French Farmhouse Breakfast Cake

"Inspired by the rustic morning treat served in French farmhouses throughout the countryside, this simple breakfast cake is the perfect companion for a hot cup of coffee, tea or cocoa. Made with pantry staples and seasoned with nutmeg and vanilla, you can whip up the easy coffee cake in minutes! Prep ahead for quick grab-and-go breakfasts during the week, serve it for a holiday brunch, or enjoy a slice with a cozy drink for an afternoon snack. Kids and adults all go crazy for this down-home comfort cake! I first discovered this easy breakfast cake recipe when reading Susan Loomis' French Farmhouse Cookbook. I've slightly tweaked her version for my own farmhouse kitchen, but the basics remain the same: a rich, buttery pound cake that's seasoned simply with nutmeg and vanilla, then dusted with powdered sugar. Home cooks in Brittany, France regularly serve a version of le gâteau du petit déjeuner when hosting company for a morning meal. It's not too sweet, has a slightly coarse texture, and is ideal for dipping in a big bowl of coffee. The cake reminds me of a Southern pound cake that we enjoy for dessert, but it's smaller and baked in a round cake pan (rather than in a Bundt pan or loaf pan). It's truly a morning delight, and one that you can conveniently prepare in advance so that you're not fussing in the kitchen on a relaxing weekend. "
